Arts and Humanities: Perspectives. A First Report (1979) of Project H.E.L.P. (Humanities Education Liaison Program).
Schwarz, Ira P., Comp.
Project H.E.L.P. (Humanities Education Liaison Program) was initiated in 1976 to identify materials and programs in humanities and arts and to study various teaching methods. Investigation involved personal observations of the author, observations of area and state arts and humanities coordinators, and reports and observations by numerous teachers and project volunteers. Most of the approximately 200 courses and programs reported on elementary, secondary, and college levels can be classified according to one of these approaches: (1) chronological--an historical study of the arts and related ideas emphasized during one or more traditional periods; (2) geographic--identifying and understanding influences affecting development of various cultures; (3) ethnocentric--investigation of cultural/ethnic differences and similiarities; (4) political--examination of political systems through selected art examples; (5) social grouping in the arts--identifying arts as manifestations of class or caste; (6) economic--involving art career exploration and subsidiation of the arts; (7) elements and structures--theoretical analysis and creative application; (8) aesthetic principles--examination of balance and form; (9) psychological--integration of knowledge about the artist, work of art, and style; and (10) philosophical--concentrating on the expression of man's ideals.
